Abstract: Epignathus is an extremely rare form of teratoma that arises from the palate or pharynx in the region of the basisphenoid (Rathke's pouch).(4) This condition is associated with a high mortality rate caused by severe airway obstruction in the neonatal period, thus requiring prenatal planning and prompt surgical treatment after birth. The authors describe a case of giant epignathus that was successfully resected followed by an uneventful recovery. Copyright (C) 1998 by W.B. Saunders Company.
